Looking forward to reading in Palmerston North with these wonderful Cuba Press poets on Tuesday night 6:30pm 27th October 2020 at the Palmerston North City Library. I will be reading from my new book, Reading the Signs.

I started writing this book while I held the Ema Saiko Poetry Fellowship at NZ Pacific Studio in 2014. Now it’s becoming a real thing, thanks to The Cuba Press. The poetry sequence in the book deals with loss and recovery, climate change and gender fluidity. Images (including this remarkable cover) are by the inimitable Neil Johnstone, who will also be playing music with Steve Burridge on the day. The launch date coincides with the last day of Neil’s ‘Chalk Dogs Have No Names’ exhibition – great opportunity for art, music, poetry and a drink in convivial company. 1pm 24 October 2020 at Potocki Paterson in Dixon St. I’d love to see you there. Bring your friends!

Meow Gurrrl Mary Macpherson launched her excellent new collection ‘Social Media’ (published by The Cuba Press) recently. Here she is reading from it at Unity Books. Pix here.

 

In an alternative future, climate refugees struggle to New Zealand in the face of torpedoes and gun-toting shore patrols. Tim Jones’ exciting novella ‘When We Land’ is being launched this Tuesday 16th July 2019 at 5:30 pm at the Pipitea Campus of Vic Books (the one near the railway station). This is the first in The Cuba Press‘ new novella series. It was first published as “Landfall” by Paper Road Press in 2015. See you Tuesday!

Tim Jones writes novels, short stories and poetry and the blog Books in the Trees.
